-We'd like the give the library ​build-in support for monitoring menu changes. This means we monitor the .menu file(s) for changes (for example made by Alacarte) and the .desktop file directories for added/​removed/​changed desktop files. When something changed we don't want to rebuild everything, but rather update and trigger some signals and notify properties.+We'd like the give the library ​built-in support for monitoring menu changes.

 +  * <​del>​Fix handling of the Hidden key in .desktop files</​del>​. 
 +    * <​del>​Right now we return NULL when loading a desktop files with Hidden=True,​ this is wrong, we should instead return a GarconMenuItem,​ add _{get.set}_hidden functions and property. There is a possibility the hidden attribute changes during runtime, then the menu item should be visible again</​del>​.
   * Always return a reffed object in the _get_ functions and mention this in the API docs.   * Always return a reffed object in the _get_ functions and mention this in the API docs.
     * Because we always ref and because of the implementation of the singletons: we also return reffed items in the GList'​s. This means that developers should also call ''​g_list_foreach (list, (GFunc) g_object_unref,​ NULL);''​ or unref in their own loop. This is not a bad thing tho, because of the file monitoring it could be that the menu implementation releases an item (because the .desktop file was destroyed), so apps _should_ have their own references.     * Because we always ref and because of the implementation of the singletons: we also return reffed items in the GList'​s.
